Join Evan Sutton for an in-depth discussion in this video Basic overview and signal flow, part of ABSYNTH: Synthesis and Sampling.
- All right, so I've instantiated ABSYNTH inside of Logic,…I've opened it up as an intrument.…If I play my MIDI keyboard (plays a few notes)…you can hear that I've got a sound coming out.…Let's talk about navigating through ABSYNTH a little bit.…It's got a tabbed interface, everything's sort of…the same color, so you have to read a little bit, sorry.…We've got the tabs up at the top here.…So right now, I'm in the browser, which is…where I can look at all of the presets.…There are a lot of really cool presets in here and…one thing I want to point out is that ABSYNTH is…sort of a Jack-of-all-trades in terms of synthesis…and sound design technique and method,…in that it does all types of different methods…of sound design and synthesis, but, at the same time,…it's also quite versatile in terms of its applications.…
People love it for creating tracks and musical sounds.…People love it for ambient sounds.…People see the name ABSYNTH and they just go,…"Oh, it's for like creating mellow, ambient sounds."…It's great for that, but that's not all there is.…
